As the video revealed, consistency is much more important than how often you exercise. However there are still some details you should know, and I will discuss them in the rest of this blog post…
How Often Should You Exercise?
The frequency and timing of your work outs should all depend on your goals.
For instance, if your main goal is to lose belly fat, and but more calories, then perhaps increasing your workout days to 5-6 per week might be beneficial so you can burn more calories, faster. But if your main goal is to simply build muscle mass, around 4 days a week can be more than enough, if you are following a proper nutrition and workout program.
That is why I recommend to workout somewhere between 4-6 times per week.
Rest Days Are Important
As I have mentioned in previous blog posts and videos, making sure that you get the proper amount of rest between workouts are very important. That is why I don't recommend working out 7 days a week. You should always dedicate AT LEAST 1 day for rest and recovery.
Most people believe that that harder and longer they work out, the better... But that's not necessarily the case!
You have to train, eat, and REST efficiently, if you want to achieve the best possible results in the shortest amount of time. Rest is crucial because that is the only time you can really focus on recovering and repairing, so you can make the results you've worked so hard to achieve a reality.
So whatever the amount of days you put aside for working out is, always remember to at least get 1-2 days of rest per week.
The Power of Consistency
At the end of the day, if you are not consistent and do not follow through, the amount of days you work out should be irrelevant, since you will probably never reach your fitness goals anyways.
Hate to be so blunt, but it's the truth.
If improving your body is important to you, you MUST stay consistent, by consistently following a proper workout and nutrition program, and you will eventually achieve your goals if you do.
That is the only way. You have to be consistent.
But isn't that also true with anything in life?
You bet it is! No matter what you want to achieve in your life, you're going to have to be consistent in your efforts if you ever want to achieve great / worthy goals.
As I mentioned in the video, you can achieve ANYTHING into your life by applying these 3 fundamental steps:
- BE CONSISTENT
Once you decide on a goal you would like to achieve, all you have to do is COMMIT to achieving it by following the proper process / plan, and then all that is left is to simply be consistent, and not give up.
It really is that simple, yet most people fall short somewhere along the way. If you can follow those 3 steps, you can literally achieve anything!
Go achieve your dreams, and get some ABS NOW! 😉
